With Peep in the house, I thought it was time to let Tashi and Ayn Chee see her up close, and let them both know that she is off limits. Sometimes I bring Peep with me to the computer, and she sits on my lap while I type. Last night I kept the door to my office open and Tashi came in. She is a big dog - about 60 pounds - and her head is as high as my lap. She came over to examine Peep. I was sure there would be outrage. Curiously there was none! Peep looked her over, she was silent through it all, then she reached out with her little beak and laid one on Tashi's nose. I couldn't believe it. Wish I could have caught a picture of that!
Tonight Peep is in the atrium. The closet was starting to carry just a little too much Peeparoma, even with frequent changing of the paper in the box. She is getting so big! I thought there might be a bit of crying tonight, since I took her light away. Perhaps it was the natural darkening as the sun set, but she is silent. I just went out there to tell her goodnight, and there were three or four soft peeps, She is hunkered down for the night and seems very content. To think I brought the crippled little chick in to die in peace and comfort.
Life is good.
